||What to look for......
There are many different designs of Henshall type corkscrews to be
found. Look for an inscription on the button as a number of
manufacturers stamped their name in a similar way to the original patent.
Fancy handles of different materials such as Ivory, bone, horn, celluloid &
various woods can be found as well as very decorative bulbous shanks.
All these elements make a more interesting addition to a corkscrew
collection & increase the value of the corkscrew.
